Euro Enviros on the Run: More UK backpeddling

Of all the countries in Europe, perhaps the one where the common person suffers the most from increased energy prices due to green governmental policies is the United Kingdom.  But there, as elsewhere in Europe, politicians are starting to recognize the incredible damage their commitment to the environmentalism agenda causes, and are putting the brakes on:
Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron appeared to signal a major shift in energy policy today as he told MPs that the Goverment should “roll back” costly environmental regulations and charges brought in by the last Labour government. Mr Cameron suggested the plan as he came under pressure at Prime Minister’s Question from Ed Miliband, who taunted him over Sir John Major’s call yesterday for a windfall tax on energy companies....

A fresh round of price increases from the Big Six energy companies, which threatens to push average household energy bills past £1,500 a month, has added to the pressure on Mr Cameron to tackle the energy market.
Read that last paragraph and think on it: Imagine if the average US household paid $2400 (based on today's pound-dollar exchange rate) monthly for energy!! Incredible!  Read the entire post over at the Global Warming Policy Institute.
